"Vivienne does, and others follow" - Jasper ConranAdd to my shortlist
In 1971 Malcolm McLaren opened a boutique shop at 430 Kings Road in London and started filling it with Vivienne's designs. The shop became an important fashion centre for the punk movement and when Malcolm became manager of the Sex Pistols, it was Vivienne's designs that dressed the band and help it carve out its identity. As the punk movement faded, Vivienne has constantly been ahead of the curve, not just influencing fashion, but often dictating it. Vivienne has always used her collections and catwalk shows as a platform to campaign for positive activism. She has spent many years tirelessly speaking out about the effects of climate change and over-consumption and has mobilised international attention around ecological crusading.
